CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
Barbara Ana's cross stitch designs are always playful and inventive. Fascinated by cats, she portrays a black cat with hypnotizing eyes and an oversized head. The cat is dressed in an elaborate costume, mixing a full skirt with geometric patterns, a blouse with puffy sleeves and a satin frock coat.
The character of the cat is standing under a branch of lemon tree forming like a protective arch. The slightly muted color palette is revived by the yellow of the lemons and the turquoise leaves, both illuminating the embroidery.
